StoryCorps Returning to Charlotte: Preserve Your Story In The US Library of Congress

This April, the StoryCorps mobile recording booth is making a much-anticipated return to Charlotte after nearly 15 years. StoryCorps, a nonprofit dedicated to capturing American stories, has recorded nearly 700,000 people since 2003. These recordings are archived in the U.S. Library of Congress, creating the largest collection of human voices ever.

The StoryCorps MobileBooth, a converted Airstream trailer, tours the country annually, partnering with local organizations to record conversations of local residents. These stories are broadcast to over 12 million listeners nationwide.

Here’s the schedule for Charlotte’s StoryCorps visit:

  • March 5th: Priority booking access for partners.
  • April 11th: Public appointment bookings open.
  • April 25th: Recording sessions begin.
  • April 26th: More public appointments available.
  • May 24th: Last day of recordings.

Participants have a 40-minute session to share any story or experience they find meaningful, with no specific content required. This is a unique chance for Charlotte residents to contribute to this national project and preserve their stories for future generations.

You can follow them on Facebook and Twitter for updates on when and how to register to record your story.
